: I heard 76 and Chevron fuel is better for your cars and also more expensive. Which brand is better, I heard that it will make a little difference for your cars.

just stick to "big name" brand gas (and make sure you >91 octane. Mobil, Exxon, Shell, etc. are good. Race Track and Diamond Shamrock are some to avoid.

also avoid real crummy look'n places cuz they most likely have old, rusty, tanks (in the ground) that could contain water. a weights and measures seal is also good to have...

you want clean, hi-oct, and water free.
(MTBE free too is good, but you'll pollute more w/o oxygenated fuel - MTBE does not harm the engine).
